Artist Showcase - Michele Ellington


I was born in sunny Florida and grew up all over the northeastern US. I moved to west Texas as a teen and stayed. I've had a long and productive career in public service, privileged to help those less fortunate than myself. I live with a Great Dane named Simba and a Siamese cat named Jasmine, both rescues. I have always loved creating art. I enjoy making all types of art and change media every few years. I have painted with watercolors, oils, acrylics; sculpted with bronze, aluminum, resin and plastic clay; created etched, painted and stained glass; experimented with papermaking and molding; made textile and fabric arts; done costume design and any other medium or technique I've had the chance to explore. Right now I am really enjoying creating jewelry. The variety and beauty of the natural stones just amazes me. I don’t have any formal art training but I take community classes when I can and sometimes teach. I enjoy learning from other artists and sharing my knowledge. Like many part-time artists, I never have as much time as I would like to create. Look for me in the Artist Alley at the convention!
